Hello, All


i do not know if this is where i am to post this so here gos

now if anyone here using AA or AA+

there is a problem with the new Reflist update

& lavasoft is working on it but this what the

problem is

It appears that the new reflist reports all BHOs

as targets so BHOcaptor or BHOcop will lit you

know the properties if it is an innocent BHO

simply add it to the ignore list

now if you do not have them go here for Info

Good Luck To All

Backing it up and restoring it doesn't work . You can export the reg key to a .reg file and merge it back in later if you need to. The Lavasoft people do know about this. There's an enormous thread at grc.spyware newsgroup about this too.

Thanks to All

Hey, All


Those of you who ran RefUpdate to get the new reflist.sig will have created a backup of the 10/17 version at the same time, reflist.bak. You can name the 10/17 reflist back to reflist.sig (and the 10/28 version to something else) and go back to the 10/17 version while you wait to hear what to do about the 10/28 reflist.


Good Luck

You're in the right place AAPlus, and thanks for the update. I hope the lavasoft folks get the problem sorted promptly as it is really impractical to instruct new users on detecting and discriminating the good BHO's from the bad ones in addition to the basics of using Ad-Aware. It is such a vital application that I hate to hold off recommending it.

Hello, All

This just posted at VOP by Urizen


the referencefile released yesterday
(129-28-10-01) wrongly identificated any BHO as spyware.
I'm sincerely sorry, the wrong file has been uploaded.It was originally not ment as release version.
The working file (128-29-10-01) has been released recently , which does not show this behaviour.


Good Luck
